So I am successfully monitoring traffice on my AP 121 using snmp and prtg. My question is I don't don't what wifi0, wifi1, wifi0.1, etc are. I have 4 SSID and can only assume that's what they are. If that is the case how do you know which ssid is 0,1,2

The wifi 0 and 1 are your radios, 2.4 and 5 GHz respectively. The sub interfaces are your SSIDs. To see which is which, run show interface from the AP cli and you will receive something like...

AP01#show interface State=Operational state; Chan=Channel;
Radio=Radio profile; U=up; D=down;

Name           MAC addr      Mode   State Chan(Width) VLAN   Radio      Hive       SSID    
----------- -------------- -------- ----- ----------- ---- ---------- ---------- ---------
...
Wifi0       xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U     6(20MHz)     - radio_n...     -          -     
Wifi0.1     xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U     6(20MHz)     - radio_n... Hive-Pr...  SSID1 
Wifi0.2     xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U     6(20MHz)     - radio_n... Hive-Pr... SSID2
Wifi0.3     xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U     6(20MHz)     - radio_n... Hive-Pr... SSID3
Wifi1       xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U   157(20MHz)     - radio_n...     -          -     
Wifi1.1     xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U   157(20MHz)     - radio_n... Hive-Pr...  SSID1 
Wifi1.2     xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U   157(20MHz)     - radio_n... Hive-Pr... SSID2
Wifi1.3     xxxx:xxxx:xxxx access     U   157(20MHz)     - radio_n... Hive-Pr... SSID3

so here is the output of my one ap. So I'm guessing wifi0 is all the ssid traffice on radio 2.5? and wifi1 is all ssid traffic on radio 5ghz

show interface

State=Operational state; Chan=Channel;
Radio=Radio profile; U=up; D=down;
Name MAC addr Mode State Chan(Width) VLAN Radio Hive SSID
